A well kept and welcoming space. Parking around is free on the streets. Very reasonably priced and so happy with the results. Thank you
Kasey A. 7/29/2019
Rus did a great job and was super accommodating! Got my best tattoo yet here!

I can't say enough great things about Rabble Rouser, specifically Paul Deters. I had made an appointment with a private studio but unfortunately my artist injured his wrist and had to cancel. I was already looking forward to getting a new tattoo so I started looking for an artist that had an opening and would be willing to take me at short notice. Enter Rabble Rouser and Paul.
I messaged the shop and Alayna responded to me right away. I asked if Paul could take me for the weekend and she said after setting up a consultation and hearing what I wanted that he could then decide. After hearing my situation, Paul got me in and managed to create an amazing piece so quickly.
During the session, Paul was awesome. He kept checking on me to make sure I was okay and he let my boyfriend sit with me (which is something a lot of shops don't allow). He also used saniderm to wrap my tattoo which I was pleasantly surprised to see.
The shop itself is fantastic too. It's clean, neat, welcoming, and has a really cool decor. The vibe is a very relaxed, friendly, and cool vibe - no pretentiousness here!
Parking is the only issue here. There is street parking on Venice or the neighborhood behind but it can get pretty tough to find a spot during some days and times.
Rabble Rouser is awesome. Thanks, Paul, for saving the day I can't wait to finish up my piece!

(Translated by Google) Spectacular site We went to tattoo the route 66 just a day before we left and they treated us very well. Very nice. We will always remember them.
Espectacular sitio. Fuimos a tatuarnos la ruta 66 justo un día antes de irnos y nos atendieron muy bien. Muy majos. Los recordaremos siempre.
Michael B. 7/3/2019
Loved our experience with Rabble Rouser. It was super easy to get a quote and appointment via Yelp, Paul was very helpful in picking out the script/font, and the studio was ultra clean. Would definitely return.
Scott P. 6/26/2019
Got most of my work done here and they always have great service, they're super patient, have amazing artists.
Would recommend to anyone who's a first time or needs some touch up.
Michelle K. 6/17/2019
Got my very first tattoo here. Luis was my artist, and he was amazing! Very informative and easy to talk to. Getting your first tattoo can be very intimidating and he made me feel so comfortable and confident, not to mention I got a freaking fabulous tattoo!! Can't wait for my next one!
Patricia E. 6/3/2019
We did our first family tat day- my husband and I and our two kids were tatted by Russ and he was great! I can't wait to visit my daughter again and get another tattoo :-)
Denise L. 5/21/2019
Did my tattoo spontaneously today. And I'm so happy with it, jim did a great job! I'll definitely go back for my next one.
Jaspreet P. 5/18/2019
We came in an hour before closing and were spontaneously getting tattoos. I decided to get a small marigold flower! Luis did my tattoo and was VERY accommodating. We went to a couple other tattoo places before, but they were not accepting people and hour before closing. Luis was very nice and listened to exactly what I wanted! I'm so happy I found this place, and definitely recommend.
Sarah E. 5/7/2019
Got my first tattoo with Adam. He was kind, patient, answered all of my nervous questions, and worked quickly and efficiently. I am so happy with the end result, it's perfect.
Sohini R. 5/6/2019
I had my first tattoo done by Arlene.. she is very friendly and patient. I had a floral line tattoo done on my forearm, her lines were so clean and perfect.
Kali E. 5/3/2019
I got my first tattoo from Arlene and she did great! I was in and out quickly and I've had no health issues. Plus the place looks great. Definitely recommend.
Gwennie R. 4/28/2019
I got my first tattoo ever today. Adam is AMAZING! Everyone is so friendly. I initially went only for a consultation. In no time I decided Adam would be the right person. He was! I highly recommend this shop. I'd give 6 stars if I could.
Cyrus J. 4/27/2019
Super happy with the work i got done by adam and arlene. They are both knowledgeable and accommodating. You can tell these folks love their craft and are very talented. Planning on getting more work done and will be heading back soon.
Rhonda C. 4/11/2019
I have been to Rabble Rouser a total of four times now; two times with my daughter and twice for myself. The shop is easy to find and street parking always seems to be available. There’s a waiting area with several chairs and a bench and lots of photos to look at while your waiting. I’ve only gone to Luis House...he’s really great; really listens to what you want and will be honest if he thinks your design won’t work. He recently fixed a tattoo that another artist in another shop did of two small birds that were flying in the wrong direction.
Samuel R. 4/11/2019
I came in as a walk-in (not my first tattoo but first at Rabble Rouser) and found Adam Parrot, now I have my artist. I knew i would come back after my sessions that i went on to book my next tattoo once i stood from the table. Adam has a great hand, very nice and professional. Everyone there is great and very welcoming, what a tattoo shop should be.
Nancy A. 4/10/2019
If you want a true piece of artwork displayed on your body - run, don't walk, to Rabble Rouser Tattoo!
I have had two pieces done by Alayna this past year. I get compliments every single day from perfect strangers. I am in love with her work. The artistry is simply breathtaking - I have no idea how she is able to capture such detail and emotion in a tattoo.
The shop itself is super clean and gorgeous. Great vibe. They always have an awesome playlist on and all of the artists are laid back and very cool. This is not your typical tattoo parlor. Even first timers should feel comfortable walking through the doors.
If you want a custom design you will have to book several months in advance (if you wish to work with Alayna). It is easy to book the initial consult where she will listen carefully to your design ideas and ask you to provide reference materials. You won't see the design before your actual appointment - but based on my own experience, the final design and then the final tattoo, will be far beyond your expectations. The wait is worth it for such high quality work.
kbunny bloo 4/10/2019
Ive gone to alayna before and adore her as a person and as an artist. I recently moved out of state, and IM STILL GOING TO ONLY HER. that says something if I'm willing to make it into a vacation just to see her and only her for all my tattoos. The place has a great atmosphere. I wanted to get an art piece from one of my favorite artist with little to no changes and to simplify it. ALAYNA was able to simplify it with little changes and still make it look extremely similar to the artists with the same feel. Honestly I'm liking the edits a bit more then the original 😮 great service, clean space, amazing people!
Sahel N. 4/4/2019
Jim is great at what he does, very visual, always tries to make the art better. Definitely recommend him to anyone getting a tat
Matilda L. 4/2/2019
I had a great experience with Rus here! My mom and I walked in without an appointment, and were able to get our matching tattoos that day. Rus worked with our ideas/sketch and made a beautiful design we both adore. He was so quick and professional and kind, and we are thrilled with the outcome. The tattoo itself took maybe 15 - 20 mins each, and cost $150 + tip, which is really well priced in my experience. So happy, thank you Rus!
Rhiannon P. 3/27/2019
Beautifully detailed, precise artwork by Adam Parrot. Worked with me to get the perfect design, and was professional and friendly from start to finish. The shop is comfortable and clean, all of the artists seemed to uphold high standards of cleanliness. The place was busy- and full of happy customers all night.
Yasmin F. 3/22/2019
My husband and I love this shop. It is a very clean space. The staff is very friendly and always helpful. We have had a total of six tattoos done here and have had great experiences. Jim had been a great tattoo artists. He is patient and works with you in planning the tattoo. He is upfront (and very nice) and tells you if something will work or not. Jim keeps everything sanitary. He is very detailed with his work and gives you the best work possible. Will definitely be coming back for more.
Callie D. 3/16/2019
I got small tattoo a few days ago and Luis did such an amazing job! It was a phrase about 2 inches in size with some pretty small line details and I couldn't be happier with how it turned out! It looks exactly like the image I showed him and he made me feel so comfortable while doing it, making sure I was alright!
Carla J. 2/27/2019
Alayna is absolutely incredible. I have wanted a tattoo for years being 50 I finally broke down and did it. Came across Alayna's work and was immediately drawn to it. Met with her 4 months ago after emailing my ideas and discussed what I envisioned. She listened and we scheduled my appointment. 4 months later she presented me with exactly what I envisioned and couldn't see. I am in love with my art piece and now can't wait to get another. Alayna was incredible not only with her talent but in making it all comfortable and perfect. Thank you Alayna and Rabble Rouser Tattoo
Jill D. 2/26/2019
By far one of the best LA tattoo shops. Clean, stylish and unpretentious. After spending many hours & days here, I couldn't recommend more highly. Alayna needs no review- she is absolutely incredible. My first pieces I explained from small ideas I had- she took them and created everything I was trying to convey and art beyond what I imagined. Over a year and 2 additional pieces later, I am so impressed by her, her work and the incredible space she and her husband have created.
Tricia D. 2/25/2019
This place is great! Everyone here is so nice and friendly. Arlene Salinas did my first 2 tattoos and it certainly will not be the last. I have gotten great compliments about my new tattoo and I could not be happier with them. Tattoos are permanent but you can always come back to get them covered up with something more beautiful. I'll probably do that sometime in the future but I love this place. I have so many more I want to get and I probably wont stop till there's no space left. Thank you Rabble Rouser! I'm hoping to get a tattoo done by each of the artists here.
Jackie W. 2/22/2019
Had a tattoo by Adam yesterday, didn’t finish all the color I originally thought I would but I love the piece. Thanks Adam!!
Anna R. 2/20/2019
I got tattooed by Arlene and it was a great experience! She made it easy to book an appointment, translated my idea perfectly into how it would look best as a tattoo and where exactly on my lower back the placement should be, and checked in with me frequently throughout the process to make sure I was doing okay. The colors are vibrant and the shading makes it look three-dimensional on my skin. The tattoo is healing well and I couldn't be happier!
Luis S. 2/8/2019
Recently got work done by Arlene and absolutely love the work she did on my forearm. Was very clear about pricing and made me feel very comfortable about my choice of tattoo and placement. We split the piece into two sessions, reaching out to book an appointment was no hassle at all. Recommend this place to anyone who wants quality ink! Will definitely be back.
Michael D. 1/28/2019
I am not one to "review" every place I visit or patronize, however, given the personal nature of a tattoo, I wanted to comment. My first tattoo and I new what I wanted. I am from Pittsburgh and went here on a recommendation from a restaurant manager. Met Jim and he was awesome. I didn't know what to expect. He took the time on a Saturday night to look at examples. He took a few examples and made his own creation. It was perfect and exactly what I was thinking. As far as talent, honestly superb. Had no idea about color and he added this and then that and it really was amazing to see. Very friendly and made it relaxing and fun. So, if you are thinking about a tattoo, I would definitely use Jim at this establishment.
Sydney G. 1/27/2019
I had a wonderful experience at this shop! The ambiance was great and the shop looked incredibly clean. Rus was my artist and did an amazing job! Can't say anything bad!
Stacy G. 1/5/2019
I sent a yelp email to this shop as a last minute alternative to a tattoo appointment that was incorrectly scheduled by another shop. They answered right away and I was able to make a same day appointment with Adam for my daughter's birthday. He listened to her, asked some great questions and the finished product left us both amazed! What a terrific experience, from beginning to end. Thank you, Adam! She loves your work!
Kaelyn L. 1/3/2019
I apologize for the long review but it is so worth it!
Let me just say if i could give them 10 stars i would! I have gotten a tattoo before at a not so good shop in my home town, so getting a second on i really did my research. After looking around at the shops around my house in LA ( i like to keep my spending locally) i came across Rabble Rouser.
Now to give you context of my situation, i messaged the shop on New Years Eve and was not expecting a response since it was a holiday but i was inquiring about the next day (New Years Day) just to see what could happen so i can get some fresh ink for the new year. After messaging the shop i got almost in immediate response saying that they will for sure look into in bc they normally are not open that day but wanted to check and see if anyone would be at the shop. Pleasantly surprised i was ecstatic by just the possibility of it happening. About and hour or so (after mid night) i got another message saying that there will be someone there and what time would i like, i chose a time and we where all set. I really appreciated the responsiveness of the inquiry and that it was such a great experience for the get go.
We arrived at the shop, being the first ones there as we where early, and as we check the door Paul (the shop owner) comes up to great us and opens the shop. He was so kind, knew my name and offered us water or anything we needed.
We told him to take his time as we were in no rush, and agter about 20 min already had my tattoo printed and sized (after a brief convo about placement) he got the size and style right off the bat and he re drew it, which was great. He prepped his station and showed me all the needles he was going to use which where all in sterilized medical packaging. As we start tattooing he constantly checked in with me to make sure i was ok and had great conversations. After we where all done he bandage me up (even let me pick my bandage color) and we went over care of the tattoo and he sent me home with a "after care" package. Also my tattoo is everything i wanted and more!
Overall this experience was AMAZING and the attention to detail went above expectations and was by far the best experience i have ever had. I will forever be coming to this shop for any future work and i HIGHLY recommend this shop and Paul was just the best!
Vanny C. 12/19/2018
After much disappointment in Silver Lake finding an available walk-in artist we found Rabble Rouser in Los Angeles and we are so thankful we did!
Luis House was our artist and even though our tattoos looked simple, it takes mad skills to get straight fine lines done right. Not only that but he was very accommodating and kept checking in on me to make sure I was comfortable and not in too much pain. He did such a good job I totally could have taken a nap.
I had a seed of life placed on the inner left ankle with some embellishment. Everything was explained clearly and they even donate $1 from every $100 to charity. You also get a goodie bag with after care instructions and a tootsie roll! My husband's favorite. Lol.
Lines may not be listed as his specialty but he can definitely add that on too.
Candace C. 12/17/2018
I really love my tattoo that I got at Rabble Rouser. It was incredibly easy to get an appointment the same day. The shop was very clean. I showed Adam the font I wanted for my tattoo and he took the time to design it to say exactly what I asked for. He was friendly and made me feel comfortable. This is the first big tattoo that I've ever gotten, and I already want to back for another one. He did a great job.
Paul H. 12/12/2018
Rabble Rouser is a great shop, very clean and totally together. I just walked in, and I was immediately greeted and made to feel comfortable. Luis was my artist, and he's a total pro. I have a bunch of tattoos, and this was a simple design, but Luis did exactly what I wanted, and I'm 100% happy. We also bonded since we're both from Texas, and we had a great and funny conversation in the process. I would definitely go back, and I'll recommend Rabble Rouser to all my friends.
Kira D. 11/25/2018
Beautiful shop, friendly crew of artists. Luis saved an older, mediocre tattoo and made it magical.
Nicole Y. 11/25/2018
Tattooed by Arlene Salinas. Rabble Rouser has got to be the most professional shop I've seen. It's clean, comfortable and the team of artists seem genuinely interested in each other's work as well as the clients. I was in recently for my 6th piece by Arlene. As usual she paid close attention to what I was looking for, keeping in mind the continuity of my current work and my plans for future designs. She thought of things I hadn't and the result was a beautiful tattoo which exceeded my hopes for it. Arlene is super detailed (aka, picky) which I very much appreciate. Her tattoos age exceptionally well. Most new tattoos look great, what I love is that mine that are 6,7,8 years old look just as great. She's also evolved her aftercare protocol to make the healing almost foolproof. I'll continue to be a patron of Rabble Rouser and Arlene for years to come.
It is so great to sit down with a dedicated artist (Alanya) who was able to work with my initial idea that needed to be expanded on. In a matter of 20 minutes we came up with the design for my tattoo and it was a mutually engaged creative process. Highly recommended.
Brandon E. 11/15/2018
This was my first tattoo, and everything surrounding this experience was a little intimidating. But immediately walking in, the customer service proved to save the day. Everyone was so nice and welcoming. My artist already had a sweet drawing of what I wanted, and we went right into. Very good price, very good job, very good place. You can tell they are passionate about their work and I have a lot of respect for it. Come here!
Heather K. 11/12/2018
This review has been a long time coming, I just wanted to wait till my tattoos were fully healed before I wrote it~
I had been researching tattoo parlors in my area because I really was itching for a new tattoo. I had designed my axolotl tattoo and wanted someone who was clean with their lines, and good with color. I found Rabble Rouser through Yelp, and liked the photos I saw. I also went on the Rabble Rouser website to go through all the artists portfolios and liked what I saw even more!
In mid October I was ready to get my tattoo done, so I had just walked in to see if there was any availability and I was lucky enough to have Luis House tattoo me that day. The studio was VERY clean, and I loved the decor inside. Luis was very easy to talk to, and very professional. I told him the basic colors I wanted, but I told him other than that he was free to do whatever with the background and shading. It turned out perfect! I love the water and little bubble details he had added to my design! The colors are so vivid, and the line art is perfect!
Once my axolotl tattoo healed up, I was wanting to get another done once I heard about the Halloween flash event that they were having. When I went I saw a really cute skeleton bat design that was done by Alayna Magnan. I asked if the tattoo could be done in purple and green inks, and she said yes. I couldn't be more happy with how it turned out! The colors are so vibrant and the line art is so clean.
I can't thank Luis and Alayna enough. I get complimented on my tattoos all the time!
I will definitely be coming back here for more tattoos in the future!
Josh P. 11/1/2018
It is so great to sit down with a dedicated artist (Alayna) who was able to work with my initial idea that needed to be expanded on. In a matter of 20 minutes we came up with the design for my tattoo and it was a mutually engaged creative process. Highly recommended.
Jana S. 10/24/2018
Did a walk-in and had work done by Luis. Nice guy, and he did great work! Lost my dog and he was able to empathize and work up a nice, quick piece to remember my pet. Will definitely go back!
Amy R. 10/17/2018
My husband and I were able to walk in and get our small designs right away! Rus was extremely helpful in the design process and did a great job at making sure we were comfortable during the tattoo. We ended up getting free t-shirts before we left! I will definitely be going back there for my next tattoos!
Adriana R. 10/14/2018
I recently went to their shop to get an astronaut tattooed on my thigh. I was headed home with a friend until I decided to find a place to get my astronaut tatted. Google suggested me many places but this one stood out the most. As I proceeded and finally arrived to the shop. I was greeted by Paul. He showed me around and told me to look at every artist portfolio. I enjoyed his portfolio and Alayna the most (little did I know they were the owners) I scheduled an appointment with him and he listened to the ideas I had planned for. I wanted an astronaut holding an item but I wasn’t sure what position. Once my appointment came I was not disappointed with the drawing he had set for. I really enjoyed how patient, kind and welcoming he was. I was really happy with the outcome. He was the first male tattoo artist I’ve come to and I was honestly nervous but to my surprise it was an easy breeze and by far a great experience. I had a great conversation, his hand was light, and he delivered what I wanted and positioned it well. Although I need one more session with him to add color to my astronaut...I really love it ! I can’t wait until it heals to have him completely finish the piece! :)
Kelli G. 10/6/2018
I was in town visiting family and was looking for a new tattoo to celebrate some resent accomplishments. I was drawn to the shop via the website. Every artist shown seemed to have such amazing talent so I walked on in. I bumped into Mr. Luis House and he listened to what I was looking for and drew up a original work of art with everything I wanted and some cool tricked out things I didn't even know I wanted. It turned out absolutely amazing. I love my new tattoo and I'm sure I will be back for more. Thanks Luis!
Carmen C. 9/28/2018
Excelente lugar muy profesional
Palak S. 9/23/2018
This spot is great. I was in town for the weekend and on impulse decided to get a new piece done. Jim took me in as a walk in at the end of the day and the piece came out so dope. Wrapped the piece up in about an hour. Fair pricing, great shop, will definitely return on my next trip to LA.
Craig J. 9/22/2018
Only went for a consultation so far but they were very helpful in figuring out which artist to contact based off of the example I had with me. They have multiple good artist and I look forward to scheduling something soon.
Geo D. 9/21/2018
My experience at Rabble Rouser Tattoo was exceptional! Alayna was my artist and I could not be happier or more thankful for her amazing work!! I had an amazing time, lots of laughs and blown away with the talent in this shop! Already saving for my next tattoo with Alayna! Thanks again for my favorite tattoo ever!! You're amazing!!
Randy R. 9/19/2018
Finished my 4th tattoo session at Rabble Rouser with Jim last night and again 150% satisfied with the results. The shop is clean, and all the artists are friendly. Unlike many other shops I have been to I feel welcomed here. I HIGHLY recommend you get your next tattoo at Rabble Rouser.
Carlos E. 9/12/2018
It's been two weeks since I had my tattoo done so this is the first week I've been able to show it off and oh man, I get a least one complement a day. People on the street say "what a piece of art " Arlene Salinas is a true artist and made my first tattoo feel like I've done this before she made the experience very comfortable as far as getting a tattoo can go. The mom and pop atmosphere was so refreshing in these fading mom and pop shop days. They keep the place immaculate if I ever decide to get another tattoo I'm not going anywhere else but Rabble Rouser!
Gina C. 9/10/2018
Paul is a talented and flexible artist, and he and Alayna were easy to work and communicate with. I highly recommend Rabble Rouser.
Metalhead 76 9/7/2018
Got a tattoo on my ribcage by the one and only Jim Parchen who patiently endured my whining and delivered an outstanding job as well. I sure will be back given the opportunity. Can't recommend Jim highly enough, though the rest of the staff seemed really nice as well.
Stephen M. 9/4/2018
Rus was a great guy. Very knowledgable, friendly and incredibly gifted artist!
Anthony A. 9/3/2018
They took me last minute as a walk-in. The artist took plenty of (appreciated) time to clean and set up the space for me. There was a lot of trust involved on my part as this was my first face tattoo. While simple the tattoo came out beautifully, and I love it. Price was very fair. I'll definitely be going back for more work.
Charlie B. 8/24/2018
If your looking for a custom made tattoo, go to the best mom and pop tattoo shop. I have been there a few times and the work i have gotten is immaculate and beautiful. Love them.
Renee A. 8/23/2018
Yes Jim! Thank you for such a great turnout. He took the time to make this just right, added a couple little details (after confirming with me that I was ok with that). It healed beautifully and I love it.
David T. 8/8/2018
This location is the best location i've ever stopped at. The people who work here are very friendly and welcoming. They treated me with such kindness it made the whole experience better. I called the shop and asked if they accepted walk ins and they do. So I ended up getting a tattoo the same day by the an amazing Artist named Jim. He really took his time to get every detail spot on. His work is amazing and I definitely recommend him. He's so helpful and will give his professional opinions on where to place the piece so it will stand out. Some Shops have this weird sketchy vibe and I always trust my guts. I'm glad I discovered this shop and trusted my gut. I will be coming back to work on my sleeve. 100% satisfied
Yasmeen M. 7/29/2018
Got my first tattoo here (a backpiece, which was probably ambitious) and Jim was a literal godsend. He helped me find reference photos and talked me through the entire art planning process. He showed me iterations of sketches and gave suggestions for art style, sizing, etc. Extremely friendly staff, cool atmosphere, and very clean. Everyone took care to answer my millions of questions and put me at ease. Aftercare directions were clear and tattoo looks amazing already. Absolutely got what I paid for.
Keiran A. 7/29/2018
Such an awesome tattoo parlour! Alayna is super talented and imaginative and must have worked tirelessly to design this overnight! Better than I could have ever imagined! Thanks!!!
Fabi Z. 7/27/2018
I got to say Jim at the shop is the best!!! These stars are for him. I was nervous getting a Tattoo after i got a bad first Tattoo elsewhere. I was referred to him via an app by some clients of him whom i never met. That kicked my anxiety a bit but after seeing his Art on them via pictures i thought id take a risk. Jim took time to work on designs and ran all of them with me to select the best. He explained every step of the design, drew it on my back and we reviewed together before he started. Not only did he listen to all my questions and concerns. He was patient and creative. He is even going to check it in a few weeks to see if any retouch is needed. He is amazing. I highly recommend him. Do not go anywhere else if you unsure. My first tattoo is not my best at all but i will definitely go to Jim in a few weeks to get it redone or covered. Thank You Jim!! The shop itself looked cleaned and organized. The staff members were ok. No attitude or anything just did little to no greeting. Can't complain. Go to Jim...
Dara S. 7/14/2018
I can't say enough good things about Rabble Rouser! Alayna and her team are talented, professional, and have the coolest shop around. My boyfriend made an appointment for us to get tattoos together. At our consultation, Alayna listened to everything we were thinking, and what she drew up was better than I could have expected. At our appointment a few weeks later, my boyfriend ended up proposing to me, and everyone at Rabble Rouser was in on it and helped him!! Her assistant, Jei, even videoed the proposal for us. You guys are the best!!!! I came back for two more sessions with Alayna to finish up my tattoo and she is just the best. Go here if you want a beautifully badass tattoo!!!
Dani B. 7/12/2018
Best tattoo you’ll get in town. Amazing talented artists.
Jeans C. 7/12/2018
Got some work done and was extremely pleased with what Alayna did. From beginning to end she was amazing. Very professional but still friendly attitude. Heard all my ideas and came up with an awesome design for my wife that we both loved very much. Place was clean and neat very laid back bistro type vibe. Overall would highly recommend!
Mark P. 6/25/2018
Always feel welcomed when I walk into the shop for a scheduled tattoo session. Paul is a geniune pleasent guy who listens to your needs when planning and then create your personal tattoo. Have returned for at least three sessions. Plan to continue to return for more work in the near future.
Jaime S. 6/24/2018
Luis did a fantastic job, love it!
Ashley P. 6/18/2018
Found my forever artist here at Rabble Rouser. Jim is great, recommend him to everyone I know looking for a high quality tattoo, and the shop is super welcoming.
Sandra G. 6/14/2018
Jim does some fantastic work! Highly recommend him for your tattoo needs.
CeeCee W. 6/13/2018
Arlene is to the point and will tell you what will work and what won't. Great shop with a great vibe :) Definitely a must for my next tattoo!
Nathalie M. 6/12/2018
I love my tattoo! Thank you Alayna, definitely worth the wait.
Timmy M. 6/4/2018
Ok, hats off to Louis and The whole team here! I have to say after visiting several shops and because I wasn't getting my ink done in Rome while on vacation and then walk around and Fly 11hours so I decided to wait until I got home and find a place. RRT had some good reviews and what I did was go around and check some places out and as with most places I went with my 1st. Impression and gut feeling, after all I am a great judge of character and no one else was going to make this decision for me! I walked into Rabble Rouser Tattoo and asked the general questions and then showed my image and I was asked to hold on one moment and let the receptionist (who was pleasant, smiling and super nice)to go get an artist for me. Not a minute later Luis came up introduced himself , handshake and took a look a the piece and was confident he could definitely do it and had me send it to him via email. The piece was ready to go and made into a larger format that I wanted and the placement was dead on first shot!! ( not an easy task but it' was spot on!Within 10 minutes he was set up in his station and ready to go, having had tattoos before he said still offered to go over everything and what to expect but I was ready and off we went! Now let me say this, the shoppe itself is very relaxing, cool, clean and modern but this place is not brand new, however, it is not worn and torn for being in business for the time it has been. They take care of their stuff and the place is impeccably well taken care of! Luis was personable and talked here and there while going at his craft with great skill and I was pretty amazed because tattoo etiquette usually is that the artist doesn't converse while working, which is understandable but this was different. The whole time he was asking how I was doing, took his time, I didn't feel like he was rushing through, the music was jumping and it was all in all a great experience. Once Luis got done, he went over the aftercare and cleaned it up and had me take a look in the mirror and I did everything not to jump up and act like a ape in heat it was frickin awesome! I did go crazy on my social media pages and the reactions from friends and family was the Same! Another great thing about these guys is for every $100 you spend you get these chips and at the front of the shop are 4 jars for 4 different charities and you put a chip in any of the jars and they make a donation to that charity, which is pretty kick ass, they're giving back and paying forward and making art! I can't wait to get back and get some other ink done with Luis pretty soon too. Oh did I forget to mention the "thank-you" bag they give ya with the aftercare info, ointment and a tootsie roll!? #knowmydirection #inkdoneandlove #RRTinkfreak

Amazing work by an amazing tattoo artist! Thank you so much Alayna Magnan for exceeding my expectations by far!
Erin M. 5/25/2018
I've been looking for a new artist for the past year plus and I sat in the lobby for about 45 min (my choice) looking at everyone's work and I fell in love with the artistry of everyone. The location is clean. And everyone is friendly and down to go over ideas and have fun with the projects. I found Adam Parrots work to be the best fit for what I want and even future work I may want. Love this shop over all.
Samantha L. 5/23/2018
Went in spontaneously knowing what tattoo I wanted to get, they immediately greeted me and took in my ideas and explanation for my tattoo. This was also my first tattoo and Adam Parrot was very professional, nice and friendly. He gave me the best first tattoo ever!
Leo Z. 5/20/2018
Really highly recommend this place. 10/10
Aiden H. 5/13/2018
Got a tattoo from Rus, very professional and quick. I love how it turned out and will definitely come back when I need my next tattoo done.
Natasha B. 5/13/2018
Such a clean and amazing shop. Paul was such a great artist and I couldn't be more happy with my tattoo!! Deff would recommend rabble rouser to anyone in need of great work.
Kimberly S. 5/2/2018
Another amazing experience at Rabble Rouser! Luiz was unbelievable with line work and was one of the kindest, warmest guys I've ever come across! Just an amazing soul! I will never go to another tattoo studio...I've been inked by Arlene and Luiz, and I couldn't have asked for better artists, and better people, to have done these beautiful tattoos! This is the most inviting tattoo studio I've ever been to, with the most talented artists! Thank you Rabble Rouser for being incredible in every way! Everyone should experience getting ink here!
Marcia R. 4/29/2018
I love my new tattoo Adam did an amazing job I highly recommend him. Can't wait to get another tattoo at this shop.
Gaby A. 4/13/2018
Rabble Rouser is amazing! I emailed about a small tattoo I wanted to get and they emailed me back a couple hours later with some more information. When the time came to get tattooed, the staff was very friendly and helpful, and the shop was incredibly clean. A few days after being tattooed I received a follow up email from Rabble Rouser with some aftercare information. I am so happy with my my new tattoo and my experience with Rabble Rouser.
George A. 4/6/2018
Alayna is AWSOME! I started coming to Alayna/Rabble Rouser last year and to date I now have 12 tattoos. Everyone that works at Rabble Rouser is professional, a great artist, and so easy to work with. Its a very chill vibe, everyone makes you feel comfortable and really take the stress off of get a tattoo. Which for me was always a scary idea. I couldn't be more pleased with my tattoos and would HIGHLY recommend Alayna and Rabble Rouse Tattoo. You won't be sorry!!
Carolina D. 4/1/2018
Got my first full color tattoo from Rus. I’m extremely happy with the results and the great service for a very last-minute appointment. Thank you so much!!
Shannon J. 3/27/2018
Very clean, very professional. Excellent, talented artists.
Lane K. 3/18/2018
I'm in progress on an epic sleeve right now and Adam Parrot is f**kin brilliant. The shop is super nice inside and everyone is super friendly. I come up from OC every couple weeks to keep getting work done because their level of quality is so high
Rob W. 3/14/2018
Found Paul through a group of friends who offered nothing but high praise. He was chill, communicative, answered all my questions, and we had a great time hanging out while he did my ink. The lines were clean, the process simple, and I'm healing well and thinking about the next one on my list. Will definitely be going back to see this team!
Kimberly S. 2/16/2018
Arlene did an unbelievable job on my black and gray tattoo! And on top of how skilled she is, she was super personable and easy to talk to, as well! By far the best tattoo experience I've had in the last 25 years of getting ink.
Alex S. 2/9/2018
I found this place on Yelp. I went in and saw Jim's work and loved it right away because he specializes in flowers. I wanted a tattoo of a flower I picked as a little girl but didn't know the name. Jim researched the name and came up with the perfect image. I have an awesome tattoo and now know the name of the flower. He's a genius! If you're looking to get a tattoo of a plant or flower, Jim's the man!
Great place! Messaged the shop on Yelp and got a very quick reply letting me know due to the simplicity of what I wanted I could come in right away for a walk in. The place is great, clean and nice decor and Luís was awesome.
Bill C. 01/25/2018
I love this place. Best artists in LA
Jocely M. 1/24/2018
I got my first tattoo here and it was great. They made sure I was comfortable the whole time. It was also pretty cool that they made sure my tattoo would be made so it wouldn't age badly. Great place!
Andrea C. 1/11/2018
I cannot express enough how happy I am with my tattoo that Alayna did. From the consultation to the last session it was a pleasure. She took my concept and it turned out better than I envisioned. She is dedicated and passionate about her work and it shows in all of her art.
The shop is very clean with a cool vibe. Lots of parking in the neighborhood and location is easy to get too. The staff is friendly and welcoming to all that walk in.
I highly recommend this shop for anyone looking to get a tattoo. Thanks so much Alayna. I'll be seeing you again...
Gary H. 1/8/2018
I had the best work done here ever. Hands down best. Adam was excellent.
Trex B. 12/21/2017
Easily the best parlor I have ever been to and no doubt the best artist - Alayna - to ever do a tattoo for me. Can't express in words how insanely proud of, and satisfied with, the ink art she created. Very creative and at the same time collaborative. I did a lot of research for the style of tattoo I was after and eventually found Alayna and Rabble Rouser. Well worth the wait - Alayna is very popular, and for good reasons. The parlor is also very welcoming - great look, design and attitude. Can't wait for my next artwork to be created.
Sarah L. 12/20/2017
We came from France with two friends and we were all tattooed by Luis.. We are delighted thank you for professionalism, sympathy...
A salon where you can eat on the floor so much hygiene rules are respected...
For my part if one day I'm going back to Los Angeles it's with certainty I'll go back..
Mehran Z. 12/20/2107
The absolute best shop in town!
Cody N. 12/15/2017
Super clean laid back shop. Arlene was easy to converse with, helped me settle on the lettering and style. No pressure, no bad vibes at this place. They took me and my fiancé as walk-ins and made it a great experience overall. Thanks guys!!
Jennifer S. 12/6/2017
I drove 1200 miles to have Alayna do my best friends memorial tattoo and I couldn’t be more pleased! I’m a little obsessed with her pinups!! This makes number 5! I will definitely go back if I ever make it back to California
Melanie V. 12/01/2017
Jim is my go to guy.... Love the shop, looks awesome and everybody there is super nice
Mandy Q. 11/28/2017
Luis did an awesome job helping me turn my niece's name into something cool and beautiful!!! Great line work and so happy with the final result!!!
Linday A. 11/25/2017
Adam Parrot was incredibly helpful and kind. He designed and tattooed a beautiful and adorable image of my cat surrounded by flowers. Ironically I used to live right down the street from this place but even after moving to Northern California I found this place and wanted to have my first tattoo done here. All of the artists are very kind and talented in their different styles and I will recommend this place to anyone in the future.
Elizabet R. 11/20/2017
I'm so incredibly happy to have found this shop! Alayna is MAGICAL. She is insanely talented and dedicated to finding the perfect placement and detail for your tattoo. She was honest and cared about the longevity of my tattoo, unlike other artists that I've worked with who have tattooed me irresponsibly, knowing that the design would not age well. Not here. Not with her or with Paul. Both of them are deeply invested in the piece as art and want to see that you walk out with the BEST possible tattoo.
Paul did a very small, detailed word on my neck, which came out beautifully, and Alayna has been working with me to cover up both of my ribcages with the most stunningly beautiful floral pieces that I have ever seen!! She's a damn BEAST!!! Her attention to detail, fine lines, and amazing shading is unlike anything else I've ever seen. Her work is truly incredible -- she does some of the most smoking hot, sexy pin up women EVER and hopefully one day, I'll have one of those lovely ladies on me. I really couldn't be happier and I can't wait to keep coming back for more.
Wonderful shop. Clean, inviting and modern. Wonderful people. Caring, attentive and kind. Parking is easy, but getting an appointment means booking way in advance so get on that!!
Nicholas L. 11/20/2017
This was my first tattoo and I am so happy I went to Rabble Rouser. The staff is great, and my tattoo artist, Luis House, was very professional and did an amazing job! He took the time to explain everything to me, answer any questions, made me feel comfortable, and did great work! Thanks so much!
Susan P. 11/20/2017
I met Alayna through my best friend and she has done 2 custom tattoos for me along with retouch of 2 other tattoos. She is amazing!!!!!! I’ve also gotten 2 smaller tattoos done by artists in her shop. Highly, highly recommend. They are professional, friendly and truly do have your best interest at heart. Best experience ever.
Jeff C. 11/7/2017
Alayna was awesome! Fantastic artist and really cares about her craft. She made absolutely sure that I was happy with my design and answered all my questions without the attitude or judgement you get from other shops.
Jacquelyn Z. 11/5/2017
Got my first Tattoo here yesterday. The guys, Luis and Juan, were awesome. Professional, funny, and super nice. I have more tattoos planned. I’ll be back for sure!!!
Brandi S. 10/25/2017
I had another great experience here. I had Alayna tattoo me for their Halloween event. The entire experience was wonderful. She is so talented, I love her art. She is so nice and professional. The other owner Paul is so nice and they remember you . I cannot wait to come back
Lesley B. 10/18/2017
My daughter and I walked in (no appointment) after reading their rave reviews. Immediately we were greeted by the staff. The shop was spotless. It was my first tattoo and I was nervous. I shared my vision with Adam Parrot and he went to work. Adam was incredibly patient, friendly and kind. The results were mind blowing. I am thrilled with my first tattoo and am already thinking about #2.
Kate L. 10/15/2017
We happened upon Rabble Rouser while having dinner in the area and were immediately impressed by the interior of the shop itself. This is an incredibly well cared for space that feels both totally sterile and yet still warm and inviting.
After looking through several books we landed on artist Alayna Magnan (not finding out until much later that she owns the shop and is somewhat of an ink celeb). Alayna's art is so crisp and clean, it was an immediate match. I needed to cover/upgrade an old tat on my hip, and add to one on my shoulder. Alayna took her time in listening to my needs, sketching things out, being sensitive to accuracy and my finickiness about the specifics. Because Alayna is so ridiculously dope at what she does - appointments are booked months out. We put down a deposit and scheduled for a few months out. (PS: "we" is me and my husband, he's scheduled for his in a couple of weeks)
When I arrived for my appointment Alayna took time and diligence to sit and make every single detail perfect. She made me feel very comfortable to adjust tiny details and make it exactly how I wanted it, (So many ink artists push you towards what they want...) while still giving her expert advice so the tattoo would look as good as possible. The task was to do two small-ish tats in one sitting. One on my hip and the other on my shoulder. Alayna was careful, precise, and yet executed with expediency. Both tats were done in under 2 hours. After we were finished Alayna walked me through aftercare very thoroughly and I felt confident I would be able to do what was asked (her aftercare is next level future shit)
More importantly than all of these logistic details that went so well, is that the ink itself looks so good it makes me laugh out loud. These are the two most beautiful, artistic, realistic pieces of art I could imagine for my body. I am over the moon with what she did and how it looks.
I cannot wait to come up with another reason to get a tat from Alayna or from Rabble Rouser in general. This shop is legit, the artists are on point, and the experience is top-notch. The bar is set very high from now on.
Cheers Alayna! Thanks Rabble Rouser.
Paul C. 10/8/2017
Always happy with the quality of work and the atmosphere. I’ve been to several other places/artists and none can compare thus far! Thanks Alayna!!!!
Elan C. 10/2/2017
Alayna was my tattoo artist. I was looking for a bada$$ female tattooer since I wanted the women's equality symbol. All of the reviews I read about her online assured me that she is one of the best out there and that although she may not be able to see me for a couple of months, it would be well worth the wait. I got exactly what I was looking for and she was incredibly down-to-earth and patient, especially as this is my first tattoo. I definitely recommend Alayna and Rabble Rouser tattoo if you're looking for exceptional artwork from cool tattoo artists.
Kevin J. 9/25/2017
Clean shop in a good location not far from Venice beach - pricing is normal and definitely worth it for the end result
Shoutout to my tattoo artist Adam Parrot who did an amazing art piece and showed me that the needles he used are brand new
They explain the aftercare info at the end and give you an aftercare package
I rate the shop 10/10 in general !!
Adreanna G. 9/19/2017
I came here to get a tattoo for my birthday and I'm beyond happy I did my research and found this place! Right when you wk in you're greeted and welcomed and the place looks great, cleaned, and professional. I got my tattoo by Adam and he was great! Very patient with me as it was my first time ever getting a tattoo, he helped calm my nerves and talked me through it. He's amazing at what he does and did exactly what I wanted and listened to me when I was telling him what I had in mind for my tattoo. Definitely we'll be back here when I have that itch for another tattoo! A great experience overall and I walked out extremely satisfied with my plumeria flower!!
Katie M. 9/18/2017
I had gotten a tattoo of a compass from a different shop years ago, and I never loved it. It looked uneven and incomplete, but I loved what the tattoo stood for, so I didn't want to cover it up or change it dramatically. I just wanted to update and improve it. Enter Paul: my favorite artist at my favorite shop. I gave him a couple ideas, and he did the rest. Now the compass is beautiful and I'm proud to show it off!
Jason P. 9/17/2017
Nice clean shop full of talented artists who are down to earth and easy to talk to.
Corinne S. 9/10/2017
Rabble Rouser Tattoo is an excellent shop staffed by professional artists. The place is cleaner than a hospital, and the staff are friendly, knowledgeable, and extremely good at what they do. I have 2 (now 3) tattoos by Alayna, and I will continue to come to her for any tattoos that are, in reality, art pieces. Would highly recommend.
Brandi S. 9/9/2017
Great shop. Beautiful and clean. Nicest staff. Very professional. Not pretentious at all. Super talented artists. I was lucky enough to have Arlene tattoo me. She's unreal. It was such a great experience.
Elise B. 9/8/2017
I just got my 2nd piece with Alayna! She is an absolutely incredible artist and tattooer. She brings everything we bring her to life! Super awesome shop! We love the art everywhere and the fact that it's super clean! We will definitely be back for more!
Blane S. 8/30/2017
Alayna was tremendous and a true professional.
Her kindness and gentle nature made the experience for my gf first tattoo an amazing experience.
Her attention to detail, and her initial drawings transposed to a true realistic picture once tattooed on.
Chris P. 8/30/2017
I love this tattoo shop!! The decor is so cool yet warm and inviting, lots of cool art and memorabilia on the walls to look at, it's not your typical tattoo shop and you can sense that as you walk in. The staff is awesome, friendly, down to earth, and welcoming. You can tell they are all friends or just get along and work together real well, it makes for awesome energy to be around. I had my tattoo done by Alayna, can't say enough about her, she's an amazing artist! Her attention to detail is exquisite and her style is one of a kind. She took and idea I brought her months ago and just nailed it!! I'm so happy with the results, can't wait to go back for more :)
Melissa J. 8/20/2017
From the moment we walked in we where greated with great customer service. Jim was awesome. He did a wine glass for me, which looks awesome. Thank you for taking great care of us.
We both love our new tattoo's and we will be BACKKKK.
Also we love the way the shop is decorated..
Chris B. 8/16/2017
Alayna is the best!
Very nice and easy to talk to about what I wanted.
I came to her with an idea and trusted her to come up with the best final vision.
I am very happy with my tattoo and recommend her highly to anyone wanting a pin up style tattoo.
Mark P. 8/22/2017
Clean, professional, friendly. Always feel comfortable and relaxed, Paul knows his art! Will continue to return.
Chelsea S. 8/5/2017
Luis was amazing! My dad went in for his first tattoo and the parlor was amazing. Everyone was very friendly and Luis made sure my dads first experience was perfect. The tattoo came out so crisp and clean. I am for sure going to be coming back her for my next piece.
Joshua F. 8/7/2017
Alayna is usually the artist that I see.. I had asked about an appointment sooner than my next scheduled. Alayna said that Paul could do it for me the next evening. I was elated and a bit nervous. I love Alayna's work, so to have another artist do something was a bit nerve racking.
Paul was GREAT! He took the time to listen to what I wanted and worked with me to get the design just right. I had something very specific in mind. It turned out even better than I imagined it. Paul was super light with his touch and we had good conversation through the whole session.
Thank you Alayna and Paul for being so accommodating! I LOVE my new piece!
Luciano P. 7/31/2017
Awesome, mi and my wife are very happy with the result of our tattoos. All the artists are great professionals. I recomend
Stephanie M. 7/27/2017
i've had my share of small tattoos to medium size, detailed tattoos (mainly black and grey, american traditional style) from multiple shops. some places i've taken the time to research, and some i've just walked in on a whim.
backstory: i quit my job recently to move to New Zealand. while celebrating over drinks, my supervisor tells me he'll get me a tattoo that we both can agree on. i'm in, of course. after 3 choices and opinions weighed in, he collected ratings from 20 of my coworkers and friends and settled on a tattoo rating me 4.6 stars (average from a collective) out of 5 stars. lol.
forward to 2 weeks later: we finally follow through on this dare (note: i did not get this tattoo drunk). i currently live on the east side of los angeles, and i had to find a tattoo shop around culver city near my now former supervisor's work. i came across Rabble Rouser Tattoo and what struck me was their organized, comprehensive website explaining the different styles of tattoos you can get (small, american traditional, black and grey, new school, etc.) and provided photo examples. i was impressed with their overall quality across their artists. one of my former artists went on to to be quite popular and hard to schedule, so seeing that their collective body of work was up to snuff as he made me all the more confident to walk in with a random artist.
the shop keeper greeted me and texted Adam Parrot, who responded immediately and came in last minute to take me as a walk in. he did the expected showing me the design, and was thorough in describing his process to achieve the look (note, this was on the spot no prior prep). we tried it on a spot i liked, made and adjustment, and got me comfortably situated on the massage table. he showed me that the needles he was using were brand new. during the tattooing, he make sure i was doing all right and checked in with me. he let me know where he was in the process while making genuine conversation.
he had a sense that i knew how to care for my tattoo, but still went over the details and gave me a little aftercare pack. that really impressed me and made me feel cared for.
i got a small tattoo and little interaction with Adam, but it was enough to see how detail oriented he is and how much he cares about his practice. if i weren't moving to new zealand, i would love to get a black and grey pin up or gypsy head from him. maybe someday if i come back. i jokingly wanted to rate him 4.6 stars in return, but he and the shop totally deserve 5 stars!
thanks again, Adam!
Claudia B. 7/13/2017
While visiting for a few days in California, we decided to get the Unalome tattoo with the Lotus flower on the inside of our forearm. No color lots of meaning. Love it! Jim, the tattoo specialist was calm, pleasant, professional, and quick!! We would highly recommend him.
Zhao G. 7/11/2017
My girlfriend and I are both firsttimers and we had a wonderful experience here. The ratio artist is easy to communicate with and gave us exactly what we expected.
Yan M. 7/11/2017
This is my first time as for geting a tattoo. Luis helped me got my tattoo. Pretty good experience! Will recommend to a friend.
Olivia E. 7/8/2017
They were able to accommodate me on very short notice and Jim was amazing! It was my first tattoo and he walked me through the whole process and made sure it was perfect.
Kongo D. 7/4/2017
The staff is super friendly, made it very comfortable as it was my first time going there. They had a cool little prize which made the experience more fun. And i more than pleased with my new tattoo. All around great experience!
Hannah G. 7/3/2017
This was my first time getting a tattoo, and I was definitely a bit nervous, but my experience could not have been better. I gave Adam Parrot a loose design, and he came up with exactly what I wanted. The shop is clean and fun, and all the artists make sure to open up the needles and equipment in front of you so you know it's new. Adam was very kind and funny and kept me comfortable throughout the whole process. And my tattoo is beautiful! Not a huge design, but exactly what I was looking for. Thank you so much!
Douglas C. 7/1/2017
I have been looking for someone in LA to finish my sleeve who does great color work with crisp lines, and I found it with Adam. I gave him some pictures and the idea behind my piece and he came up with a sick design and killed it. It's day three after and it has healed up awesomely, no scabbing at all.
Victoria R. 6/24/2017
Alayna has done several of my tattoos in the past, and I loved them. This was my first time at Rabble Rouser, and she was as awesome as ever! The tattoo is super cool, and her shop is clean and professional. Definitely worth my trip from out of state! You have to get tattooed at Rabble Rouser!
Angel K. 6/21/2017
This tattoo shop is amazing. The whole process is super professional and clean. I was traveling there and was really impressed by everything. Very appreciate that Alayna made the appointment for me! Many thanks, her works are super amazing!!
Jill C. 6/19/2017
My daughter and I wanted to get tattoos. She found this place. She had her brother check out the artists that work here and he liked Steve Delgado. Steve was contacted via email and got back to us very quickly. We were able to set up appointments for the next day. Steve is super friendly, professional and very service oriented. And very talented. He was happy to help out two ink novices get their first tattoos, even though they were minor ones. The shop is very clean and really adorable. When we're ready for more, we will definitley be going back to see Steve!
Shane R. 6/10/2017
100% recommended....the shop is amazing. Incredibly clean, and the staff is friendly and professional. I cannot say enough about the quality of tattoos that come out of here. Everyone is so talented. I am a true repeat customer for sure.
Debby A. 6/7/2017
Fantastic as always. Steve is amazing. So easy to make an appointment online. I will continue to come here for future tattoos. Love Rabble Rouser Tattoo.
Jerry R. 5/31/2017
Steve delgado is a great talented tatoo artist. I have been getting tatted by him since 2000. The man is fantasticaly awesome. Cool as beans too.
Omar J. 5/26/2017
As a blank slate who was very nervous to get inked, I couldn't have had a better first experience. Jim was friendly from the start & made sure I was comfortable throughout the whole visit, from running several copies of the draft so we could find the right size and placement, to talking me through the actual tattooing process with clear expectations and professionalism.
I could talk about attention to detail, but the portfolios these talented individuals have built truly speak for themselves, and you have more than enough proof in all these reviews that they have the customer-facing amicability that I imagine many customers seek.
I don't know when I'm getting my next tattoo or what it will be, but I do know I won't need to look elsewhere.
Scott G. 5/25/2017
After meeting Alayna and Paul at Monsterpalooza last year, I knew immediately that Alayna's aesthetic was a 100% match for the half-sleeve I've been babbling about for the past decade or so. Given Alayna's quality work and her popularity, she was booking out six months in advance, but that worked for me perfectly. Our initial sit-down the next day was fun and chatty, as she scribbled down ideas and took tracing measurements. I exchanged ideas and pictures via email with her and her assistant Ava over the next month or so, and then just waited for the big day!
The shop itself is awesome -- all the funkiness and edge of an art gallery next door to 1313 Mockingbird Lane, but I feel still approachable and friendly for first-timers and walk-ins. Their attention to cleanliness and professionalism is obvious.
And, if you haven't seen examples of Alayna's work yet... be prepared to be floored. Her pinup style is cute, flirty and sexy. Her detail work is unbelievable, and her eye for color and placement is amazing. I've spent almost 20 hours with Alayna over the past three months, and I can tell you she is a thoughtful, dedicated, professional artist who can do magic with a tattoo gun... who also happens to be funny as hell, and great fun to chat with while she's doodling on your body with a needle.
I've travelled 500+ miles, three times in three months, to work with Alayna. If that doesn't tell you how awesome she is, I'm not sure what would. :) And trust me, I'll definitely be making that trip again in the future.
Dominique K. 5/23/2017
Amazing work done here! Yes, you have to wait for their schedule to accommodate you. But it's worth the wait. Don't whine about it...
Stephen C. 5/19/2017
This is a nice shop and all but this review is specifically for Paul Deters, who I found to be a very ethical and skilled artist. An all around honest and good guy!!!
I got an out of state tattoo that had a geometric glitch in it and I needed to balance it out and Rabble Rouser is in my neighborhood so I headed down. I was greeted by Paul and he was nothing short of super-polite with a very chillaxed attitude. My fix was small so I was hesitant to pay the shop minimum of $100 for 5 minutes of tattoo work, but this guy had a good, solid vibe going so I put my faith in him. I wasn't at all wrong. He did a good job and let me know that if it still wasn't perfect, his work was guaranteed. After it healed, it was still a little off and he honored his deal 100% and fixed it again to perfection. No only did he right someone elses wrong but he did so in a very pleasant way with a great attitude.
Would highly recommend Paul from the experience I had and as well his wife, Alayna, from her similarly pleasant attitude and beautiful women's faces she manages to tattoo. Hard to make it pretty when it's the size of a dime...and she does.
God bless you guys and your beautiful family!

I was recommended to this shop by a friend of mine. I went in to get a Coraline memorial tattoo for a friend of mine that had just recently passed. Jim Parchen was my tattoo artist and I just have to say he totally exceeded my expectations!! When he was done, I totally cried. I totally recommend this place. It is also one of the cleanest tattoo shops I have ever been to also and very organized.
Andrej D. 5/14/2017
Nice atmosphere. Adam is great and easy-going guy, working very precisely. Thanks!
Margarito P. 5/2017
I went in for my first tattoo and guys was able to take my references to a whole new level! It is absolutely perfect and so worth it! He took the time to explain why my initial chosen location was not the best and was funny through the experience. Would definitely recommend!
Jonathan W. 5/2017
I just got my first tattoo and this place is GREAT!! They were very friendly and i had a great experience all the way around. Jim P did mine , he is a great artist that takes pride in his work and does an incredible job ! I plan on getting many more done and i wouldnt even think of going anywhere else!
Chloe M. 5/9/2017
Wow what an overall AMAZING experience.
My friend and I were walk-ins and seen within 30 minutes.
My tattoo was a design that I liked and found online, but Jim Parchen tweaked it to make it uniquely beautiful and absolutely perfect for me! I am extremely happy with my tattoo and cannot stop staring at it! The lines are very sharp and clean, I can't find anything wrong with it.
The shop was extremely clean, sterile, and professional while fun and laid back. It was an overall great vibe and I felt very comfortable.
I will definitely be going back to see Jim again for future work and my fiancé will be going too!
Thank you so much Jim and Rabble Rouser Tattoo!!
Ruby A. 5/10/2017
LOVE this shop, especially Alayna!!!! Just got my second tattoo from her and am beyond thrilled. She took my ideas (which included random pictures and a description of the "feeling" I was looking for) and ran with it. Both times!!! I'm super picky about almost everything and I completely trust her opinion. Even when I'm adamant about changing something, she respects my feelings and incorporates them to make something amazing. But I also trust her judgement on everything else. I recommend her to everyone and will only go back to this shop! Everyone is super cool. No drama, no attitude, just good vibes. Totally worth my trek into LA - and I HATE going to LA!!
Julie T. 5/13/2017
I came with my husband here two weeks ago for an inquiry on a tattoo. Jim was able to help us with a price point and scheduling an appointment with him. A week later we came back for him to get his tattoo. We loved Jim's work. He is very talented and extremely professional. His work was exceptional and it shows how much passion and dedication he has for his work. We are extremely happy with the end result of my husbands tattoo. I am definitely going to come back and get a tattoo from Jim.
Joel W. 4/23/2017
Walked in here yesterday and got a tattoo added to my half sleeve. They were able to hook me up even though I didn't have an appointment. Adam Parrott is the artist that did my tattoo, and he did a great job. He was able to work with what I already have on my arm and add in the piece I wanted. He was quick and detailed. Love my new piece! Thanks Adam!
Alicia G. 4/23/2017
Went to rabble rouser for my 18th birthday and wanted to get a small tattoo. Jim Parchen was more than welcoming and made me feel comfortable when we were consulting about what I wanted. He offered his opinion in relation to what I also wanted and overall it turned out amazing for my first tat. If I do end up going to get another this would be the place I will continuously go to.
Sarah H. 4/22/2017
Good tattoos and good people! Need I say anything more?
Martha W. 4/21/2017
I had some work done by Adam in September and every time I look in the mirror I love it even more. I traveled to La from the Midwest but Adam communicated excellent via email and had drawn up the tattoo of my dreams before I came in. The shop was clean and the entire staff was friendly. Thank you Rabble Rouser!!
Meghan L. 4/19/2017
Been going to Alayna since 2010! Awesomeness ever artist to return to year after year!
Alayna is the best. I love her pin-up style and have gotten multiple pieces from her.
Kathy M. 4/9/2017
Bought my bf a tattoo as a gift. Had an amazing experience and the tattoo is gorgeous!! The shop
is very nice and clean. Love the decor! Adam Parrot was very professional, offered artistic advice and the end result was amazing. Will def be back!
Brenda O. 3/15/2017
I'm am very satisfied with the tattoo I got done by Steve. He did an amazing job! I am definitely coming back for more. Such great and friendly service.
Zac F. 3/12/2017
I went to go see Jim Parchen after booking an appointment over phone ( they do accept walk ins but it's a good idea to call ahead). I was looking to start my second sleeve, I have my back filled, chest shoulders and a half sleeve already. I've been to many tattoo shops from LA to Japan and New Zealand. This one is the best one I've been to. They have knowledgeable, friendly, badass staff, with excellent professionalism, cleanliness, and post tattoo care. Jim worked with me on my design and gave me professional advice on the aesthetics, flow of design and what will look best now, and 10 years from know. Jim knows his stuff.
Heather R. 3/7/2017
Amazing tattoo by Jim Parchen! I went in with a few pictures and ideas and he was able to design exactly what I wanted. The design was also able to cover up an old and faded tattoo that I really needed to upgrade.
His work was beautiful and detailed, and I really couldn't be happier with it.
The shop is clean and modern, and my tattoo was more than fairly priced.
I will definitely be returning for some future work. Thank you for such a great experience!
Jessica D. 2/26/2017
Where do I begin? It was an amazing experience for both my husband and I! Walking into any tattoo parlor can be intimidating but upon opening the door you feel right at home. The decor is fitting, it was CLEAN and they had the most amazing playlist going.
I had called earlier in the week and was directed by Rick to send an email giving details and they would contact me with an artist or if I had someone in mind to check their availability. Within 24 hours I had a call and an appointment....
Adam met us up front and went over our tattoo ideas, he made suggestions to get the most bang for our buck and advised us on tattoo snafu's to avoid. We made a few changes and he met each request, even one I made a the literal last second, I thought he would be annoyed but he wasn't. It made me feel so comfortable to ask for what I wanted. His station was clean and simple and he opened the needles in front of us to show they were clean and safe. His work was quick and precise and he is just a nice guy who is clearly talented. I would absolutely recommend them for first tattoos or for someone who has 50, you won't be disappointed. Thanks guys! We will be back for more!
Stephen T. 2/18/2017
Jim gave me my first tattoo. I was very satisfied with the finished product. He advised me on the best options for my tattoo as far as shading, size and placement. He was very friendly and fun to talk to while he did the tattoo. He also provides plenty of information for after care and it was obvious he took pride in his work.
Alex F. 2/8/2017
Got my first tattoo here, everything went great and the staff were helpful and quick to reply to set up appointment.
Brandon B. 2/2/2017
My experience at Rabble Rouser was perfect. Every time I walked through the door I was greeted, even when all artists were working. First I met Alayna who kindly set me up with the first available opening with the artist she felt would be best for my piece.
Jim Parchen was the artist who did my ink, and I couldn't be happier. His portfolio speaks for itself, I would recommend him 100 percent. I took all of his recommendations as far as color and detail. Dude is experienced.
Got to reposition the piece as many times as I needed until I was completely satisfied, as it should be. No rush jobs here. Everything came out exactly how I wanted, and I will definitely be back for my next tattoo.
William S. 1/31/2017
Tired of the same old LA tattoo bullshit of artist too good to even respond to you or so gross you feel you can catch Hep C just by walking by. If so you gotta contact Alayna Magnan at Rabble Rouser. Her shop is so awesome and so welcoming you will not believe it.
Found Alayna and Rabble Rouser when looking for a parlor to propose to my fiance. I had contacted and looked at so many places in LA and it was hard to even get someone to respond to me. Then by some miracle I found Alayna in an article about the top 10 female tattoo artists in LA and it was like fate stepped in.
Alayna got back to me and everything with my proposal went perfect. Her amazing shop was the perfect place for me and my girl to get matching sparrow tattoos and for me to sneak in my proposal. Her and her assistant Jei helped me all along the way and the day was absolutely perfect.
Tattooing is no longer a man's world...check it out!
Katie M. 1/26/2017
Ever since getting tattooed by Paul Deters, I've gone back again and again. Not only that, but I send all my friends to him, regardless of their personality, tattoo experience, or the design they want. (The best thing about Rabble Rouser is that they adjust for YOU. If you're nervous, they'll keep you calm. If you're talkative, they'll chat with you. If you're not, they'll leave you to do your own thing.) So when I found out Paul left his old shop to open his own place, I was thrilled.
As a tattoo shop, Rabble Rouser is chic, clean, comfortable, and not at all intimidating. I can only speak from experience about Paul, but he's the best. He's talented, sweet, funny, and calm. And best of all, he's honest. Paul always gives me his professional opinion in a constructive and helpful way, and all my tattoos are as good as they are because of his suggestions regarding size, placement, and shading. I'll never take my business anywhere else.
Mike S. 1/2017
Alayna Magnan IS the definition of professionalism. Her vision, talent, and ability to execute ideas and concepts are nothing short of amazing. The shop is pristine, thoughtful, and overflowing with creativity. The good energy and laughs are infectious. Best tattoo experience to date. Would recommend this place to all.
Tamara B. 1/21/2017
Alayna Magnan was amazing! Her art is simply beautiful and captured my vision perfectly - even crafting the baby dragon I asked for after my actual bearded dragon! It was fun being tattooed by her. She chatted with me and tolerated my whining ;-) while I endured the art around my elbow! Looking forward to coming back for my first color session. Love it and feeling excited about having my own personal statement brought to life in a beautiful 3/4 sleeve. Thank you, Alayna!
Francesca C. 1/16/2017
I have a few compliments I would like give Rabble Rouser!!!
First, the customer service I received when I was inquiring about getting work done and setting up an appointment, was incredible!!! They responded to my inquiry immediately and were incredibly informative about the costs, schedule, and who would be the best fit for what I wanted! They were friendly and complimented the piece I wanted.
Second, the shop itself is beautifully decorated with great attention to detail!! It was clean and crazy organized!!! Each artist has their own personalized space to work in.
Lastly, Jim put soooooo much effort and thought into drawing and perfectly laying out my tattoo to best fit what I desired. He gave me good advice about not doing the tattoo the way I had originally wanted because the colors would fair well on the foot. My tattoo is beautiful and he made my vision a reality!!!! Obviously, tattoos are a commitment and I didn't want to be the fool that got something seemingly epic that in reality would become a jumbled mess of ink. Jim is the bee's knees and he knows his sh@&!!!!!
Thank you Rabble Rouser for running a great business and thank you Jim for caring about my happiness!!!
Sharon Y. 1/16/2017
I came to Rabble Rouser as a walk in after seeing the beautiful and colorful work on Yelp! The studio itself is gorgeous with a lovely steam punk/Victorian vibe to it. One of the best decorated tattoo places I've been to. Adam was my artist and he was accommodating, knowledgable, and has fantastic work. He made sure I loved my design and also put his own creativity into it! He also was (surprisingly) the only artist out of the three I've been to that actually showed me that the needles and equipment he was using was brand new, packaged, and sterilized. They truly care about the safety of their customers here! I loved my tattoo.
Mike D. 1/5/2017
Rabble Rouser is a great shop, good peeps, great vibe, and they can sling some ink! If you need work done, Rabble Rouser is the spot. Ask for Jim Parchen. If he's booked, get on schedule with any of the other talented artists.
Mary Jo. B. 1/2/2017
I went back to Rabble Rouser for a second tattoo. I absolutely love my new piece. Alayna's ability is badass. She is professional, approachable and so sweet. A shout out to her intern, she was so kind and helped me keep my mind distracted during my three and a half hour sitting. I love going to the Rabble Rouser. Alayna is the best. I most definitely will be back.
Jim Parchen has been my artist for several years and I'm so glad he moved to this great shop! Rabble Rouser is really professional, clean and comfortable. Jim Parchen has exceptional talent and integrity. There is nothing he can't do! He goes above and beyond and always exceeds my expectations. Jim is so creative and has such an eye for detail and really cares about his work as well as has fun while he's creating. Hell of a nice guy and I can't wait to go back!!
I've gotten two tattoos here so far. I absolutely love it! They're nice and the work is done very well! I'm definitely recommending them and going back again!
Walking into a tattoo shop can be SO Intimidating, but not here! There is Zero attitude at Rabble Rouser. The shop is clean and inviting. let me start by saying that everyone at this shop is So talented... I would trust anyone here to ink me. That being said:
I've been going to Steve Delgado for years. His work is so clean and diverse. I've seen him do traditional, Asian, color, black n grey, lettering.... all of is done fantastic He did an amazing back piece on me to cover up an old pos tatt I had. He's since started my sleeve and in between has done tiny little ones here and there. He understands that getting a tatt ( no matter how small) is a big deal and is super patient. He listens and will really work with you to make your ideas work.
I arrived at Rabble Rouser with the idea of what I wanted and Alayna Magnan did the drawing and my tattoo beautifully. I loved! Beautiful colors, discreet and feminine. I'm a vegan and she took care of everything and told me what I should do. I'll be back for the next tattoo with Alayna!
Rabble Rouser Rules! For the past few months I have been in the process of getting a beautiful floral sleeve from shop owner Alayna Magnan. I LOVE it. She took my minimal idea and made it into something perfect for me in her distinct and gorgeous style. Alayna is a very talented artist and sweet person who runs a tight ship. The shop is extremely clean and decorated with tons of cool art - a great environment to be in for hours on end while you're "under the gun" ! One thing I must say is that Alayna is patient and kind, something I really appreciate as an anxious tattoo customer. I'm high maintenance. And she has been nothing but sweet and gracious, so patient with my silly questions. I think the artists at Rabble Rouser generally work by appointment, but during my many hours there I witnessed plenty of walk-ins get taken care of that same day. Check them out on Instagram to see what each artist is up to. Great shop!
I've been back and forth between a number of ideas since I turned 18, and was very excited to have finally decided on a tattoo. I checked out a number of places to go and landed on Rabble Rouser. I had a fantastic first-tattoo experience, couldn't have pictured it any better than it came out. Adam Parrot is a wizard.
I met Alayna when she did my tattoo on the show Best Ink. She did such a great job that I knew I wanted her to tattoo me again. I was super excited when she opened Rabble Rouser. I finally decided what I wanted and I couldn't be happier with the results after my first session. She is so good that I had to make an appointment and wait a couple of months but it was worth it. I'm looking forward to my next visit for color. I recommend her highly. She is worth the wait.
Super friendly, very clean place.
I have been waiting for years to get my cover-up done by Alayna, and it was worth the wait! She scheduled us for a consultation to discuss my ideas, and I went back the next day to complete the tattoo. I left the consultation confident that she understood my style and would come up with something great. I couldn't have been happier with the sketch she showed me when I came back the next day. Not only did she draw something beautiful for me, but sitting to have it applied was easier than I thought it would be. My previous tattoo was simple, just black lines, so I was worried about sitting for several hours. She and her apprentice kept up a steady flow of conversation while I got comfortable with the application. The end result? I have a gorgeous tattoo that I'm so proud to wear! I would happily go back for another, by Alayna or anyone else in her shop!
Went in on a whim with a buddy to get his first tattoo, which came out amazing btw. I ended up seeing Steve's work and set an appointment. Not only was he cool with changing up the design the day of, he killed my compass tattoo. Great lines, great shading, and great work. I'll be going back soon to finish up a half sleeve. Thank you Steve and thank you Rabble Rouser.
All i have to say is "Wow". Love this location and vibe. The shop is super clean and modern.. Every artist in here is super chill and cool.. Steve Delgado is my Artist currently working on my sleeves right now and I can't get enough on how much talent this guy has, he can produce an ideal and make it come to life on your skin. Steve has tattooed my whole family literally. I highly recommend Steve and getting what you exactly want to get done! Check out the website and every artists profile and work that suites your needs and expectation. Trust me you will not be disappointed
This was the best tattoo experience I've ever had! Not only are the artists extremely talented, but they also make sure that you're as comfortable as you can possibly be while getting your tattoo done. Shout out to the artist who totally made my experience amazing, Jim Parchen. What a talented guy! Totally worth all the pain
Amazing Spot! Talented dedicated Ink Masters work Here- Must check out Steve Delgado !!!
I had my first sleeve done by Alayna. Overall the experience was worth the wait. From the beginning, Alayna was friendly, caring and engaged in the process with me. Not only does her work speak for itself, but she's an amazingly talented and incredible person. She made this process pleasant despite the horrid elbow pain! I can not recommend her enough. Everywhere I go I receive compliments and people want her info! Going to Alayna is an experience in beauty and talent that you will not soon forget :)
Shout-out again, again, again, again, and again to Steve Delgado! Steve have been my artist for 5 out 6 tat's, I wished I lived in Los Angeles for my 1st one, he would have done that one too. He's always booked up a month or more in advance, but will try to squeeze you if he can earlier. From my Hebrew writing below my collar bone, Ankh down my outer shoulder arm, biblical scripture on my right pec and a few more.. I always get compliments at the gym or at the pool. The vibe is sooo cool, all the artist are friendly and happy to greet you upon arrival or over the phone but I recommend to stop in instead of calling. (Remember they are artist, so they are visual people than verbal). My tattoo yesterday was very simple for him, but it was my most intense one to date, because it was over my spine and lower neck. Steve inform me of the sensitivity near the central nervous system, so he periodically check-in since I had my headphones in. Rabble Rouser is a World Class Tattoo Parlor located on just off the 405hwy on Venice Blvd. Go check them out, you won't regret it! Ask for Steve*
My experience at Rabble Rouser Tattoo was exceptional. I made it in for my appointment a little early and had a chance to talk with Alayna (Shop Owner) and she couldn't be any sweeter. My artist was Jim Parchen and he did a kick A$$ job! I absolutely love my tattoo. The shop is super clean; it is just as nice in person as in the pictures. I will definitely return for my next tattoos and highly recommend it.
Got my new tattoo at this place and man ! My tattoo artist Jim is insane with the ink !! I can vouch for him if you ever need an insanely good tat , his attention to detail on tattoos is really good , if I ever need someone to give me a 10/10 tat I'm definitely coming back here !
Went in last night to get an old tattoo covered up and had a great experience. I worked with Jim and he was very understanding and worked out a few different designs. Took his time and did a great job. Shop was also very clean. Would definitely recommend.
I've followed Adam (Parrot) to Rabble Rouser from previous parlours in LA. The joint is cleverly designed with fans placed throughout the shop to keep the cool pacific breeze moving in/out. The shop's brilliant artists are more than capable of creating various tattoo styles per client. They do take walk-ins but I recommend scheduling in advance if you have an elaborate idea. Best wishes to Alayna, Paul, Adam, Steve and Jim! This shop rocks!
My brother, my boyfriend, and I got tattoos by Jim he is an exceptional tattoo artist!! Everything came out just how we wanted it, he listens closely and designs a perfect tattoo that flows with your body. Not to mention great prices and location! The shop is very very clean. Overall we are very satisfied and would highly recommend this place! Especially if you're getting your first tattoo, he does a great job with making you feel comfortable! Thank you Rabble Rouser!!!
Steve is an amazing artist. He has the ability to take what is in your head and make it happen. I couldn't be happier and will be back for any art I have done in the future.
Awesome... The shop looks amazing, great ambiance and fun people. I love getting work done by Jim. He is my go to guy for five years already. Loved seeing him in this new shop. And thanks again Jim for another great experience and wow new pieve of art number 8 for me and number 2 for my boyfriend. You are AWESOME... That's the word of the day
When I first walked in the shop. I was greeted so kindly by Alana Magnan. She told me what I needed to do so I can get my tattoo process going. Which is make an appointment first and told me which artist would be best for my tattoo. I got my very first tattoo by Adam parrot. He was so nice and very patient with me. When I saw the end result of my tattoo I loved it even more. He did an amazing job. I can not wait to go back for another one.
Awesome shop and environment. The artists are experienced and knowlegable who care about the art form. The prices are reasonable for the amount of experience this shop has. I've been dealing with Eric who is a great artist that helped bring my rough idea into a bad ass work of art.
Got my second tattoo by Paul. It was a great experience. He is excellent and professional. Love the shop. Its comfortable, welcoming, clean. Rabble Rouser is my go-to place. I have a couple of friends looking to do their first tattoos. I'm sending them here.
Such a great shop! Really cool decor, everyone is really friendly. Thanks Alayna for kicking butt on my geometric crow tattoo. So stoked on it! Will def be back to get more work done.
Love this shop! Everyone who works there is super friendly and they make you feel comfortable and welcome. I got a piece done by Paul, he is very patient and an amazing artist. I will definitely be going back for more work!
Ask for Jim Parchen! He is an amazing and talented artist! The place is very nice and clean. You will not be disappointed! If you can't find parking on Venice Blvd. park on one of the residential streets.
This place is great. Clean and professional. I've followed skrewfish [Steve Delgado] for over 10 years so I know it's a good spot.
I just got tatted yesterday by JIM!!! OUTSTANDING WORK!!! He takes his time and is very detail with his designs!! Its my second tattoo with him... His work is just amazing!!!! Soon I'll bring my wife for her first tattoo. The crew at the shop are very friendly and they make you feel right at home!!!! Don't hesitate on making an appointment with JIM or any other artist!!!!!
got my first Tattoo for my birthday (sorry mom) and I am satisfied! It's a bible verse. The place is clean and I like how the place is maintained and decorated. And as hobbyist in photography, I like how the light and colors lined up on the background. It feels like, I wanted to do a photoshoot here LOL!
Adam is awesome! he talks you through on the process (since it's my first time) and since my tattoo is a script, he made sure we look into different font styles and he will tell you if the font you chose will be hard to do or not suitable for you (which is awesome!). and the girl on the shop is cute (forgot to ask her name :(). I will be back to get my second and my third and so on :)
Go get tattooed here! Eric has tattooed me twice. He's the best! He cares! He works hard! Great shop and work ethic
Alayna did an outstanding job! I told her the basic things I wanted and she came up with a beautiful piece of art! Everyone in the shop was super friendly and made us feel comfortable and at home.
My tattoo looks great. Well healed bright colors. Very professional and friendly folks work here. Great advice on what tattoo to get. I have never been this happy with a tattoo ever. I'm going to go back and get another tattoo soon.
LOVE LOVE LOVE my new tattoo. Alayna inked me before and while she couldnt see me today she put me in adams excellent hands... This guys lines are sick. Such a perfectionist! Im beyond happy and he was able to add to the other tattoo i had to fix it and make it pop! Would highly recommend this place.
I have a decent amount of tattoos. They're all in good taste and people ask me about them way more than I'd like. I go to two artists- one is Steve Delgado at Rabble Rouser. ... Steve is truly awesome. He is not a scum bag- he's a really nice guy. His art is beautiful. He's fast and skilled at tattooing. My hope in writing this is that maybe one less person asks me about my tattoos and just goes to Steve for some work instead.
Can't say enough great things about the shop and Paul. First, the shop is clean, well lit and well laid out. The day I went, I was one of three getting inked and there was plenty of space even as all three of us were on tables.
I haven't gotten a tattoo since 1999 (out of a book nonetheless) so it had been a while. It can be intimidating going into a new shop and feeling out of place. Paul was so easy to work with. He is professional and easy to talk to--never felt like the noob I am. Most importantly his work is great and I love my new ink!
I would absolutely recommend anyone check out Rabble Rouser, whether you're a veteran or a newbie. Everyone is friendly and knowledgable. Can't wait to go back for my next one!
I got my tattoo done by the fabulous Alayna Magnan in July, 2015. This was my second amazing tattoo by Alayna - I got the first one on season 3 of Best Ink with a winning box of Halloween-themed chocolates. I was blown away the first time, and was excited to get to visit her at her adorable shop in Venice.
This time around, I asked Alayna for a 30th birthday tattoo of a piece of birthday cake on my forearm. She had the brilliant idea to go full color, sans black outline. My favorite thing about Alayna's style is her super colorful and girly pieces, so I told her to go for it...and I'm so glad I did!
I am not exaggerating when I say that I get at least one compliment a day STILL 6 months later. This tattoo is beyond vibrant, and downright shocks people that it is real. I've had people gather around me to stare at it and ooo and ahh countless times. It's kind of nuts how often it happens!!
Needless to say, I so thrilled with my tattoo, and I can't wait for Alayna to give me more eye-popping, show stopping tattoos.
Great vibe in this place - several artists from Art & Soul relocated here and I got a chance to reconnect with Jim for some detailed black line & dot work. Jim was always a great artist (have several pieces from him now) and now the shop he's in has a friendlier, more stylized & professional vibe. Receptionist was professional and attentive (but not hovering which I appreciate in front desk staff). It's also awesome that Alayna & her husband own this shop so bonus points for lady tattooers getting theirs. Expect to pay a small premium for the vibe but I can't recommend Jim or this shop enough.
Alayna Magnum is the best tattoo artist you could possibly go to. As someone who was very nervous for my first tattoo, she consulted with me prior and was transparent about everything involved. In addition, upon giving her an extremely complicated design, she adjusted it and inked it flawlessly. The ink job was SO GOOD that the calligrapher hired a professional photographer to take photos of it. I can't express how talented and professional Alayna is!
Words cannot describe how awesome Alayna is. I came into the shop looking for a cover up for and old tattoo and what I got in return was pure magic! My new tattoo (an adorable little owl) is absolutely stunning and the amount of care Alayna put into designing the tattoo and coloring it in is amazing. I've gotten so many compliments on my new tattoo and I'm so grateful to have found Alayna. The shop is also very clean and decorated in a really cool way that showcases the talents of the resident artists. I highly recommend this shop!
Steve Delgado did our tattoos today and we were very pleased! He makes you feel very comfortable. He is thorough and makes sure to pay attention to detail. He will be doing more of my tattoos soon! Thanks Steve!!!!
I visited this shop after my favorite tattoo artist, Eric Alvino began working here. I honestly would follow him anywhere as he's the only one I trust tattooing me but this shop was just amazing.
It's has such a chill, professional vibe. The other artists are all so friendly and supportive the hours just flew by. It's clean, very well kept and the bathroom is adorable. (I know, the bathroom but seriously, it was so cute and SO clean)
I'm so happy he's in this new space and I cannot wait to go back and get tattoo'd by him again.
If you want new ink check him out, he's the best.
I had a piece done in memory of my mom passing done here with Adam. He took a couple of reference images and drew an amazing stencil perfect to my requests. That tattoo was quick with beautiful line work and pricing was more than fair for such a gorgeous shop and great vibes. Thanks Adam and thank you Rabble Rouser!
My best friend had an appointment at Rabble Rouser scheduled with her long time tattoo artist Eric. I didn't want to just sit there for hours while she got tattooed so I checked out the site and was immediately attracted to Steve Delgado's traditional work! I emailed him my design idea and appt request. He got back to me within 24 hours.
We finalized the sizing and color ideas when I got to the shop. Set up was quick but meticulous. Steve's gentle touch with those needles was appreciated. I was actually so comfortable I started to fall asleep at one point. Two hours later, my piece was complete and I am absolutely in love with it! Pricing was fair and Steve was a gentlemen.
The shop itself is clean and tidy. Everyone was super friendly and the space has a great vibe! I am looking forward to getting more work from Steve at Rabble Rousers :)
Steve Delgado has been my t attooer for 10 years . He is so bad ass, his lines are perfect, his shading is on point. I'm so happy
To start...the shop itself has a very cool and laid back atmosphere. Clean and comfortable stations . The space is unlike any tattoo shop I have ever been in, it is like you are in a hair salon. There is plenty of parking, so you dont have to worry about your car while getting your art.
Alayna and Paul are very professional and friendly. They have thought through every aspect to keep your experience easy. The online booking, with email and text confirmations, after care packets with detailed instructions and ointments to care for your tattoo during the healing process.
Alayna has been my artist for 3 years. She has beautifully executed five pieces for me so far. She is very versatile in her artistry..she has done asian inspired, celestial & pin up style pieces, which all blend perfectly together. You share with her what you would like and allow her to take care of the rest. She will make sure the placement, shape and art will fit you proper. I wish I would have met her sooner, it would have saved me from some of my more questionable, earlier work.
Make an appointment with Alayna, Paul or any of their artist, you will be happy you did!
Rabble Rouser is my new tattoo spot! I've gotten a tattoo from Alayna and Adam so far and intend to work with Paul next. This is a talented group of young artists that you can't go wrong with. As someone with a large amount of tattoos that's seen the inside of a lot of shops, I really appreciate the cleanliness and organization of the shop is well. They have my top recommendations and soon enough they'll have another appointment on the books for me as well!
The day after I got my first test/trial tattoo by Alayna,I dedicated my entire left arm to only her art. Alayna's original work, her lines, and her attitude are all equally wonderful. She is incredibly busy so make sure to set an appointment. That being said anything worthwhile is worth a little bit of a wait, ink is forever!!!!!
Went there and got a tattoo from Alayna. The place is very clean and has cool stuff up on the walls.
Alayna was super professional and friendly. I got a great tattoo from her and I can't wait to go back again. Her attention to detail is phenomenal and my tattoo healed super fast and looks great now.
If you're looking to book an appointment with her get in there asap as she tends to book fast and you might have to wait to get tattooed a little bit but I promise you its worth the wait.
Everyone there is super friendly and very talented. A great group of artists. I love this place!
Absolutely love the vibe of this shop! I've been going to Alayna for a little while now and I love this new shop so so much, so many talented artist. Thanks again Alayna for creating yet another masterpiece
Worth the trip to visit this great artist. Can't say enough great things about them!
One of thee best shops I've ever been to hands down. Rable rouser is not one of those boring plain Jane style shops. It's very stylish and cool but is very clean and sanitary. The artist rock. Alayna will kill anything girly or any style pin up you want. Paul will crush any monster or horror theme tattoo and between the other artist and guest artist you'll be able to find someone to fulfill your tattoo needs. Shop is full custom and by appointment which can take some time depending who's tattooing you but it's totally worth any wait. You'll always leave happy. Everyone is super nice and will make you feel comfortable whether it's your 1st tattoo or 31st tattoo. Awesome place definitely check them out!
Alayna and Paul are not only incredibly talented tattoo artists, they are an unbelievable team. They have put together a chic, beautiful and rad shop all on their own (with a little support from baby Warren). Their love, passion and skills are prevalent in ever nook and cranny of Rabble Rouser Tattoo. Getting inked by Alayna is always a complete honor and joy! I can't wait to come back for more and if you're debating on where to get your next tattoo, stop and book an appointment because I promise you this is the place. Everyone at this shop is extremely talented and friendly, you can't go wrong*!
*Unless you choose not to go to Rabble Rouser ;)
Love the work! Excellent! Did a super job on my friend! Wish I lived closer! So jealous!
I have a few friends get work done from Adam Parrot and I knew he was the artist for me. He designed a sick dragon for me. It looks amazing! The lines are tight and the colors are exactly what I wanted. I'll be back for more ink.
Alayna and Paul are amazing! Their shop is beautiful, clean and an enjoyable relaxing atmosphere. They are Extremely professional,friendly and the talent is outstanding. My husband and I spent the day with Alayna getting the first stages of our tattoos and we can't wait to get back and see the finished product. I highly recommend this shop for any and all your future tattoos. Thanks again to Alayna and Paul for an amazing experience. I know my husband is already thinking of ideas to come back and see Paul very soon.
IMO, there are two types of tattoo artists in the business: those who are happy to etch into your skin whatever you want them to, and those who operate their business with a sense of style, integrity, and professionalism. Adam Parrot, operating out of Rabble Rouser, is the latter. Although I had some minor tattoos that were a decade old, it had been a very long time for me since I was last inked. I came into see him when I was looking for someone who could help me create the sleeves I have always dreamed of having--my research told me that he was the guy to see. He did not disappoint.
Best place to get some ink...Alayna is awesome...come check out this great shop filled with awesome artists
Last weekend I got my third tattoo from Alayna. She's the best! Super clean lines and popping colors in all my tattoos. Alayna is super sweet and kind and I already booked another one from her for next year. Also I recommended a friend who booked as well. The shop is super clean and the decor is really fabulous as well.
This is the best shop in LA. As someone who has many tattoos, (somewhere over 30% coverage?) I was lucky enough to have found Alayna and Paul to enhance my skin. They are awesome people and talented dedicated clean artists. Happy to have been inked in their beautiful new shop. If you are reading this you have found the right place. Great work by great people recognized and awarded in the industry including placing top three on oxygens best ink.
Within 15 minutes of first consulting with Adam, I knew that I could trust him to be 100% honest with me and that he truly cared about achieving the right outcome for me. If he didn't think a particular idea I had would translate into a good-looking and sustainable tattoo, he flat out told me so. But, because Adam is ALSO all about making the customer happy, he was right there to offer alternatives which were viable/sustainable, and that he would feel comfortable attaching his name to. He never once compromised his integrity--but he has, time and time again, gone out of his way to accommodate my wishes.
Great shop and atmosphere! And Paul was so nice and friendly. I would recommend this shop/Paul to any of my friends! Thanks for amazing tats :)
Alayna does great work. I love her and everything she shows me. I recommend her to everyone along with her husband Paul. Everything they do is custom to you and what you want. They do not do copies of other work and will never put your tattoo on someone else. Your tattoo will be an original if you go to them. Everything about this shop is welcoming, comfortable and clean. I already have two tattoos from Alayna. My mom got her whole back covered along with my sister getting one on her shoulder. If you come here you will not regret it.

Eric is the best! I started my tattoo at another shop with Eric, but finished it up at Rabble Rouser. This shop has a great atmosphere and all the artists get along with each other really well! Eric is a super rad guy and has a great aesthetic. He took the ideas of what I wanted (and didn't want) and created a beautiful piece of art. He is very personable and easy to talk with, which makes the time go by really quickly. However, if you want to just put in headphones and jam in your own zone, he's cool with that too. I highly recommend Eric as your artist, and definitely this shop!
In dealing with Adam over the past few months (sleeves take time!), I have seen how artistic, creative, and passionate he is about his work. He simply will not etch something into my body unless he is sure it will look good on me. Period. His sense of pride in his design and execution is well-merited and richly deserved. Adam has never inked me without making 100% sure I was on board with his design/concept/vision, and he checks in with me throughout the process to make sure I am with him every step of the way. And I always am.
Alayna Magnan is the best tattoo artist I have ever had. We go through the whole process of what I want before we even start. I show her what I want, where I want it and what it means to me then she puts it together in a way that best fits my body.
What a great experience at Rabble Rouser!! Alayna was able to capture exactly what I was looking for. Her detail, is impeccable and color vibrant. The shop itself was as clean as clean gets, with a creative twist to an industrial look. I highly making an appointment with Alayna if you are looking for a extensive resume, and an eye for detail. She puts her heart into her work, and I can't wait for the next one...
Adam is an artist. I interrupt him while he is doing his job often to tell him so. He designs his tattoos both on and off your body until he is satisfied that he can execute something that will properly showcase his considerable skills and make you both happy AND look good.
Alayna is the SHIT! Started my sleeve yesterday and everything she came up with for the design was breath taking. Everyone in the shop was super nice and friendly. even had the pleasure of meeting her Lil guy and watching him boogie to some jams :). overall I couldn't have asked for a better experience. if your looking for professionalism and bad ass work Rabble Rouser is the spot!!!!!
Absolutely love the vibe of this shop! I've been going to Alayna for a little while now and I love this new shop so so much, so many talented artist. Thanks again Alayna for creating yet another masterpiece
The best Tatto shop in the area. Paul and his wife are the nicest Tatto artists around, Paul is big hairy guy and looks scary, but really helpful and the nicest guy around. The shop is extremely clean and really cool vibe!!! I would highly recommend Rabble Rouser if you are looking for a good Tatto shop in the area. Alana, Paul's wife actually came in second or third place on a Tatto show!!! So for the money, you can't beat Rabble Rouser. Very clean, friendly staff, and cool vibe. What more can you ask for???
I have never gone out with a short sleeve shirt on where someone has not complimented me on my Adam ink. Never. How fantastic is THAT? My tats are just that beautifully executed. How often does that happen? It's all because of Mr. Adam Parrot. Book with him today.
Rabble Rouser Tattoo is the best. I drove down from Sacramento to have Alayna rework an older tattoo. I had a three year old shoulder tattoo that never looked right to me. Although I liked the images, the original application was very poor. So, I sought out an expert - Alayna Magnan. During my consult, she offered smart suggestions that would improve the appearance of the tattoo and its longevity. I was sold. One the day of my tattooing session, I was nervous. Alayna immediately made me feel comfortable. She got right to work, we had fun chatting, and at the end, Alayna gave me the design I had always wanted. It's breathtaking and I LOVE it. If you want to a new tattoo or need some extra help on an older tattoo, Alayna is your professional artist. She is the real deal. I know I'll be driving to southern California more often just to go to the Rabble Rouser for a tattoo. Thank you Alayna!
I had the pleasure of having Adam Parrot work on some amazing pieces. I tossed him a weird concept and he was so into it. Most artist get turned off if they're challenged with a task that's not the style or median in which they work. Adam turned this little idea into an amazing story!
If you don't get a sexy girl pinup from Alayna you are seriously messing up with your life!
Awesome shop. Very clean. Very cool. Alayna is great. It's like she could read my mind. She took my hodge podge of ideas and created something incredible. Thank you!! I would definitely go back!
Came here for a simple and pretty bird tattoo and I wanted an artist really good with color. After checking portfolios this place had a solid team of color experts! So I called and the girl that talked to me was friendly but bummer no one was available to take me as a walk in. But I got to set up an appointment with Paul for the next day (hey, its gonna be on me forever, so a little wait wont kill me!). Anyway, Paul was fantastic! He totally listened to my ideas and gave his honest professional opinion and redrew what I came in with to make it custom for me with a personal touch. He was also really light handed (as far as tattoos go!) and my bird came out great! By far my favorite tattoo!!! Also, He took his time setting up (I am a bit OCD so I really watched him set up and everything was new and clean, and organized). The time went really quick thanks to the cool retro music videos playing and all the gorgeous artwork on the walls to stare at. I will definitely be coming back for my next tattoo and I think I even found a place nice and inviting enough to bring my mom for her first tattoo! :-)
And PS. Not totally on topic, but the bathroom is really nice (not what I expected at a tattoo shop lol)
I have wanted a tattoo from Alayna for months and today I finally got one! She is an amazing talented artist and did a cover up for me that is absolutely beautiful! The new shop is awesome and she and her hubby did a great job with the decor. Alayna thank you so much for making my tattoo personal and amazing. It was great to meet you!
Super stylish shop. Very clean and has great artist. If you want a rad tattoo this is your shop.
Sometimes, an artist will suggest something which may not SEEM like what you had in mind when you went in, but then the stencil goes on you and you say, "wow, you're right. That does look amazing. Do it!" Adam is one of those artisans. He looks you over, looks at your body, discusses your overall expectations and then skillfully creates something which is beyond your wildest dreams. Basically, I am Adam's tattoo bitch. If he thinks it will work, I am on board because he is usually always right on the money. I trust him implicitly and am so glad that all the research I did beforehand turned me on to him. Call him. Drop by for a consult. Walk away with the understanding that you, and what you want to do, your goals, are unique and important, and special and achievable and he is the man to get you there.
I absolutely love Alayna Magnan!!! I was desperate to cover up 20+ year old tattoos that had been bothering me for years due to the poor quality. Not only did Alayna cover them up, but she did such an incredible job that she made me truly appreciate the art of tattooing. I loved the cover ups so much that I just recently had Alayna add a large peacock on my back.
The atmosphere in the shop is wonderful. It's calming and very classy. I can't wait for my next tattoo!!!!
Adam is truly a beautiful artist with such a warm heart and soft touch. He calmed me down completely, was totally honest about the way it would turn out, was super fast and funny, and so gentle! I really enjoyed my experience!
Alayna is amazing: talented, sweet, personable! Just spent five hours with her and she made the time fly by! My tattoo is everything I had hoped for!
I had the privilege to make an appointment with Adam Parrot recently to slap on an improvised wasp (6 inches length). When it comes to tattoos or any art for that matter, I prefer to give the artist the reigns. I guided Adam to what I envisioned (evil bee/wasp) and asked to him to go from there. I had no idea what to expect before coming into the shop that evening. His artwork was spot to what I had in mind. He's got a medium hand (not too much or too little pressure) and he's just a great artist to talk to while you're getting some work done.
So i've been getting tattoos from Alayna Magnan since March of '11. The quality of her work is impeccable. It's up there with the best work of any great artist you're gonna find. But that's just a part of the whole experience. She's so much fun and amazing as a person that the sessions just fly by. As soon as i'm done i cannot wait for our next appointment! And as a professional artist, there's no comparison. She actually listens to my ideas and suggestions and incorporates them even if it's last minute shit. But her take on the art is so incredible that i almost always defer to whatever direction or recommendation she makes because it's usually a perfect suggestion.
As for the shop itself, it's clean and up to any standards. There are no bullshit panels with stupid stock tattoos all over the place. It's truly a custom shop by any definition. Truly a classy place to get a tattoo and have an awesome experience.
Just had the first session on my sailor moon tattoo, the shop is very nice and clean. Alayna did my tattoo, I love her she is so nice and down to earth, and I love her style of tattooing. In love with my tattoo so far but I know I will love it even more when it's done.
Paul is a gentleman like no other. Steady hand, fine lines and thick beard.
Adam was awesome - the tattoo is the way I expected or even better. I loved the details and colors. Cant wait to go back again!
Alayna and Paul are not only incredibly talented tattoo artists, they are an unbelievable team.
They have put together a chic, beautiful and rad shop all on their own (with a little support from baby).
Their love, passion and skills are prevalent in ever nook and cranny of Rabble Rouser Tattoo.
Getting inked by Alayna is always a complete honor and joy!
I can't wait to come back for more and if you're debating on where to get your next tattoo, stop and book an appointment because I promise you this is the place.
I can't say enough about how pleased I was with Adam's work. He was a really nice guy, sweet demeanor and he did a fantastic job on my tattoo, which was of a dream catcher which required a lot of detailed line work. The tattoo is healing perfectly after 3 days, and I even had someone say to me that they thought my tattoo was henna because the line work was so well done! I said, no, believe it or not this is real, just fantastically done! Adam really did a great job!! I highly recommend him!
Alayna is incredible! If you're thinking of getting a tattoo or an entire sleeve coverup like me, do yourself justice and go with Alayna.
If I could give more stars I would, both Alayna and Paul are highly skilled artists dedicated and passionate about what they do. Already looking forward to my next appointment. Thanks you two! ♥
